Echo is looking for a new home

Echo was found in a field with poor quality grazing, contaminated water, coils of barbed wire and pieces of metal on the ground (right).

The police removed her and placed her in RSPCA care during legal proceedings and when her owner pleaded guilty to failing to provide a suitable safe environment, the Courts gave the RSPCA ownership. This meant we could start finding Echo a new home.

Echo is a companion horse and currently shares a field with a foster gelding called Barnaby. She would probably be best as a companion for a gelding as she likes to be the boss!

She is a nervous but pretty little girl who picks up her feet beautifully. She may be little, but she does have quite a tummy on her and we have to watch her diet carefully so she doesn’t become overweight.

Echo can be a little head-shy; perhaps due to something that happened in her previous life. She likes routine but doesn’t like surprises and is nervous of new and different things. So she will need an owner who can be around to spend time with her, getting to know her and showing her that life isn’t so scary.

If you think you have what it takes to offer Echo a home and would like to find out more, please contact RSPCA Gonsal Farm Equine Centre. Or take a look at our list of other animals currently in our care.
